In summer 2014, we met for lunch at a temporary container bar at the Bürgerbräu worksite. During these lunch breaks an idea popped up of opening up a store for concepts - basically making a living out of selling ideas. One thing let to another and in 2015 the FIN-GER Finnish-German Concept Store opened its doors at the former Horse Stables (Pferdestall) at the Bürgerbräu Old Brewery in Würzburg, Germany.

The FIN-GER is all about making ideas; creating innovative concepts & making ideas become reality. In 2015 the FIN-GER created the concepts and realized the ArchitekturAkademie für Kinder, FIN-GER Architecture Biennale, nanokino, nano-office, Panzerkette, Urban Camping, Camera Obscura, Belvedere, Finnish Sky, took part in the international Restaurant Day, and arranged numerous art exhibitions with a wide spectrum of arts and artists in the minimalistic, whitewalled 33 m2 Store.

While coming up with these concepts, we noticed the emergence of a new philosophy: fingerism. It is about seeing the best in everything and everyone, and using creative play and good humour to make ideas become reality By the way, in the photograph above you may spot our friendly greeting - The Bird.

So, you might ask: "Why FIN-GER?". Our answer is: "Why not?"
